Henchy, Geri; Weill, Jim; Parker, Lynn
This report is one in a series by the Food Research and Action Center celebrating the achievements of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) in its 25-year history. The report documents the growth in WIC participation nationally and in each state during the program's history. Following a brief discussion of the program, its history, and some of its achievements in reducing rates of low birth weight and infant mortality, the report consists of three sets of data: (1) a one-page national WIC profile of participation over the history of the WIC program; (2) 51 state WIC profiles (for 50 states and the District of Columbia) of participation over the history of the WIC program; and (3) data tables (appended) providing the national and state data on a year-by-year basis.
